of this evening's talking points memo. the radical radio network air america has announced it is all over. they are out of business. no surprise, since that operation was never successful. here is a surprise. last tuesday, when the massachusetts votes were being counted, fox news had almost 6 times as many viewers as msnbc in prime time, 5 times the audience of cnn. that's not a victory. that's a massacre. sean hannity, greta, and myself totally wiped out our cable news competition on perhaps the most important news day of the year. to have perspective the factor at 8 on tuesday night beat all of abc' prime time programming that evening. now, most of the liberal media ignored that story and will not tell you how dominant fox news has become. that's why many newspapers are failing. they as isimply don't tell you e truth. writings in the miami geraldo tv critic glenn garr vin did tell the truth quote: >> bill: talking points believes it's important that you, the concerned american citizen, understand exactly what's going on here. take a look at this graph put out by johnny dollar on the net

money. their traditional organizes, the red cross, the bush/clinton fund. in the appeal to america's generosity and compassion we will respond but i urge viewers to pay close attention to whom you send your check or who whom you give your credit card number. the second challenge i think is not unlike those we've seen in other natural events, this magnitude. this is a poor -- this is the most impoverished country in the western hemisphere. very little infrastructure to start w very little pipeline, inadequate roads and given the magnitude of the devastation we shouldn't be surprised initially there are problems with distributing the aid that we know they denied to desperately. >>> they'll work it through. >> neil: we do. but are you saying the better part of valor might be to avoid haitian government authority and find either respectable international relief agencies to do that? >> yeah, at the outset americans would be -- i would advise americans to contribute to those entities they know of and perhaps had supported in the past, direct their aid in that fashion. the longer term que

in the people of america not just the government of america. >> sean: i agree. i think this arrogance and i think misinterpretation of the last elections' results. if you got to bribe senators to support your health care plan and buy off unions to support your health care plan and you are not going to keep your promise to be transparent and put it on c-span it seems this is a reaction to that arrogance do you agree with that analysis? >> i do. i think a lot of people will look at the campaign issue by issue to understand why scott brown has been so successful. it is really the attitude of are call them the neomonarchists in washington who believe big government is better, smarter, wiser than the people is happening in massachusetts the citizens here are saying no, we want a government that responds to the people of america and does not spoken to the ideologues and left wing of the democratic party. >> sean: what does it say about the president? you believe this is a referendum on barack obama's agenda. now, if this comes out, we have 63%, this just coming in, it is still 53-46. we don't ha

, reverend sharpton, have you a majority leader, one of the most powerful people in america, going around using the term "negro dialect?" >> it's a concern, but whether or not it is enough to ask him to step aside given his record and the fact that he was saying why he felt his candidate can win. i might add, joe, we did not bring up trent lot, the republicans did. the republican chairman said we were raising a double standard. we did not use on senator reid what we used on senator lott. we didn't bring up lott. i don't know anyone who would have made that outrageous comparison. >> reverend, did you read what harry reid's reaction to trent lott's comments were? not to get too deep in the weeds here, but it doesn't help back up the point that there really can't be a parallel here. because obviously trent lott made the comments about strom thurmond that led to his demise and harry reid had a reaction to those comments and i'd like if we could put them up on the screen. he basically said he wouldn't do something like that, and that's how you play. in 2000, then senator-obama suggested -- >>
on america. one year later, major garrett has a look back at the president's foreign policy. >> the president's biggest foreign policy hoop came at the end of his first year, sending 30,000 additional troops to afghanistan to combat a tenacious taliban. >> i'm convinced that our security is at stake in afghanistan and pakistan. >> when mr. obama accepted his noble peace prize he surprised some by defending his expanded afghan war as crucial to winning a post 9/11 peace. republicans backed this decision but not what came with it. >> his simultaneous announcement of his desire for an early commencement of withdrawal of american forces sent a very bad signal. >> signals, mr. obama has tried to send new ones as with his speech to the muslim world in cairo. at big summits the president acknowledged what he called u.s. missteps in foreign policy, economics and the environment. >> it is not just the apologies that make a difference, it is the overall weakness and decline in defending american interests. >> the white house and its allies call it practicallal honesty. >> he has shown a sincetivity to
my press credentials because there is no reason why i private citizen in the united states of america... >> i want to just, this is the part you're holding up credentials. he's in your face being overly aggressive here. then, you have the right to walk on a street. don't you? >> yes. any citizen as right to walk on -- anyone has right to walk on public streets in washington, d.c.. and approach a candidate running for elective office. the question the candidate has a right not to answer. and reporters are right to -- have a right to repeat their questions. i've spoken to cokely before. >> last question. we're running out of time. you only wanted to ask about comments all terrorists left afghanistan. it's a good question. she said she's not privy to the facts surrounding this incident of we have a picture. she's looking at you on the ground. >> i mean, she could have asked any, that operative working on the campaign what happened. she was walking a little bit of'd of me. she heard the clanging and she turned around when she saw that. i believe. i was on the ground. i don't know exactly
him. there's no reason a private citizen in the united states of america -- >> sean: this is the part where you are holding up your credential, getting in your face being overly aggressive. you have the right to walk on a street, don't you? >> yes, any citizen has the right to walk on the streets public streets in washington, d.c. and approach a candidate running for elective office. the candidate has the right not to answer. reporters have a right to repeat their questions. i've spoken to coakley before and she answered some of my questions. >> sean: you only wanted to ask about her comment that alter s have left afghanistan, which is ab hurt. coakley said she is not privy to the facts surrounding the incident. we have that picture, where she is looking right at you on the ground. is that disingenuous? >> i mean, she could have easily asked the operative working on her campaign what happened. she was walking a little ahead of me. she heard the clanking and she turned around when she saw that i believe. again, i was on the ground so i don't know which way she was looking when the push

change america. you were in iowa with me all of the republicans that streamed through in early january 2008, they were so hopeful. they said this guy will be so different. he's not a crazy left winger, not a product of the '60s. that's why he won iowa. in fact, that's why he won in 2008. we saw with the stimulus bill, with cap and trade, health care reform, every step of the way, mika, he chose to take nancy pelosi's approach, and henry waxman's approach, and barney frank's approach instead of iowa's approach and this is where it landed him. >> tell us a little bit, given what joe was saying, we hear from the white house one thing, but i was reading tweets all night long. give us a sense of what you're hearing on the ground in terms of how people feel. not only in terms of the direction of the administration, but why they vote for scott brown. >> massachusetts, arguably the most democratic state in this country, don't want someone who is beholden to a party. and how you govern like that and pass legislation, i don't know, because as a party you have to come together on issues and make
wins tomorrow the president will be badly damaged and all political hell will break loose in america. obama care could crash and burn. americans simply do not like the corrupt bargains being struck in the healthcare arena. louisiana, nebraska, far left unions like the seiu have all been bribed, bribed into supporting obama care. that is not change we can believe in. that is not hope of any kind. that is backdoor politics of the worst kind and the folks know it. on the economic front i believe the president is doing the best he can. but unemployment remains tie and taxes in massachusetts very high. thickthings are not good there. adding it all up big time political disenchantment. i know the bay state, i worked there for years and democratic party is very strong. so mr. brown is not a lock but he is ahead in the polls. late today, a survey by insider advantage gave the republican a nine-point lead and some obama people in washington reportedly think it is all over. but it isn't. so please check out "the factor" tomorrow night. we will be live and have the latest on the race. let's bri
. >> as the international community continues to respond i do believe that america has a continued responsibility to act. >> what sort of long term commitment in haiti does the president envision? what will it take in money and manpower to rebuild this island nation? how was haiti left so vulnerable to a disaster for so long? we'll get the latest on the situation from officials on the ground, then, we sit down with former presidents bush and clinton, who joined together at the request of president obama to lead fundraising and relief efforts. >> our job is remind people there is an ongoing need. we'll do that. >> then, as president obama completes his first year in office we take an in-depth look at what he accomplished and how the american people view his presidency thus far. health care, the economy and politics as the president risks his own political capital to assure senator ted kennedy' seat stays in the democratic column. analysis from two insiders, former counsel to george w. bush karen hughes and staff to president bill clinton, john podesta. and two long time washington reporter, "time" magazi

, that is going to blow an enormous hole in this health care plan that already is blown a huge hole in america's wallet. that has to be filled. >> gregg: where are you going to get the money? >> you, me, all the viewers, we're going to have fill in that hole that they just punched and it's going to come in the form of taxes and fees and not to mention the sort of suppressed growth and things like that that people argue always come with higher taxes in the first place. >> gregg: if the bill passes, seniors are going to have to give up medicare benefits, doctors are going to have accept less money, hospitals will be a southbound more costs, non-union workers are going to pay more, but union members are the ones that get the big break. people aren't stupid. they are going recognize what is going on here. might this come back to haunt the president and democrats? >> -- oh, i think absolutely. americans hate unfairness. they just don't like it. one of the things that caused republicans to get thrown out of office was this feeling among voters that republicans were picking winners and losers. and wh
anything on wall street. he's really the kind of guy that wants to stick it to the wage earners of america. where is the middle class in this entire cycle? compare it to the guy that held the seat for us so many years, ted kennedy. >> how much more do we have to give to the private sector and to business? how many billion dollars more are you asking, are you requiring? when does the greed stop? >> you know what this is about? this is about loyalty to change. and i find it so interesting that all of the polls out there and everybody out there says coakley is going to lose. wait a second. grab the moment, liberals. grab the moment, democrats. you mean to tell me that the conservatives, they were loyal enough to give george w. bush a second term but were not loyal enough to give barack obama is second year with the majority? massachusetts, that means you just saw who represented you for 46 years. do you really want his successor to be a dick cheney disciple? part of the problem for the democrats is feeding strong candidates with this turnover as far as age is concerned. you've got a long time
someone very dear to massachusetts, and to america. senator ted kennedy was a tireless and big-hearted public servant, and for most of my lifetime was a force like no other in this state. [applause] his name will always command the affection and respect by the people a massachusetts and i said to be filled the same about her. there's no replacing a man like that, but tonight i honor his memory, and i pledge my very best to be a worthy successor. i said at the very beginning, when i sat down at the dinner table with my family, that win or lose we would run a race which would make us all proud. i kept my word and we ran a clean, issues oriented, upbeat campaign - and i wouldn't trade that for anything. when i first started running, i asked for a lot of help, because i knew it was going to be me against the machine. i was wrong, it was all of us against the machine. tonight we have shown everybody now and that you of the machine. i'm glad my mom and dad, brothers, sisters, and so many family members are here tonight. once again, before i go any further, i want to introduce somebod
